Robots can Now Manipulate Human Feelings? Well, it Seems True
Robots now have the ability to manipulate human feelings which seems quite dangerous for the future
Emotional competence plays a crucial role in human communication. The robotic designs of interaction processes between humans and robots are increasing. As humans work to become less socially robotic these days, robots are becoming more human-like. Robots need the ability to recognize and understand human emotions in a certain situation and they have to express their own emotions adequately. With recent advancements, robots could be shifting shapes with artificial emotions, helping manage human emotions and much more.
Nikola – The Android Kid
Android robots capable of emotional interactions with humans have considerable potential for research application. The recent study led by Wataru Sato from the RIKEN Guardian Robot Project focused on building a humanoid robot that can use its face to express a variety of emotions. The result is Nikola. It can successfully convey six basic emotions by moving ‘muscles’ in its face. Researchers can control Nikola’s movements using a coding system called the Facial Action Coding System. Nikola has a body to assist people, particularly those with physical needs living alone, researchers noted.
England’s University researchers made advancements towards creating shapeshifting robots by coating objects with mini-robotics that would transform them into different shapes.
These robots will help soften the blow of bad news. Tsukuba University Researchers in Japan have designed a robot to read text messages with emotions. A weight-shifting feature allows OMOY to convey body language, leaning in with a little empathy to the users’ emotions and expressing simulated emotions. Researchers reported the robot helped some users calm down.
The shipwreck of Endurance, from Antarctic explorer, was discovered by an underwater robot called Sabertooth. It is an intelligent transformative robotic system. The Sabertooth is a hybrid AUV/ROV capable of working in deep water and as an autonomous vehicle. The Sabertooth is an ideal option for autonomous inspection or maintenance and repair tasks, as well as offshore survey work. The vehicle can reside in the docking station for more than six months without maintenance, reducing the cost of surface vessels.
